With the old Platform, there was a section for reporting Spam to report spam listings. I could not find it here. Can you advise please?

Hey Mohammad,
 
Google has done away with that section of the forum. They've created a new tool to report spam called the Business Redressal Complaint form.
 
You will need to use this to report spam from now on.

Hi,
Thank you for your reply. I see that that form is limited to reporting wrong name, address, number and website. Is it correct to assume reporting a fake/spam listing should be under "bussiness name" ?


Thank you

Good question,
 
Yes, this is what I do since there is no option such as "Entire listing is spam".

Hey Adam,
 
You will still need to use the Business Redressal Complaint tool. You can upload a spreadsheet with all of the businesses and their information.

A review can only be removed if it violates guidelines, I recommend responding to the review via your Google My Business dashboard.

Thanks,

Molly

How does one contact google regarding reviews that are used as slander on a business site.  I have 3 reviews that have no relation to my business what so ever and I have never offered patient care or services to the names that left the horrible reviews.  I would like to know how this may be removed.  

Someone has clearly used my company site inappropriately.
